The CSIR-CMERI developed 360° Car Flusher is a Sodium Hypochlorite Water Screen which uses specialised Nozzle design to ensure that the Sanitizer Diffused Water is evenly spread over and under car body/ Wheels with adequate Water force and coverage.
The Architecture of the 360° Car Flusher is based upon a Water Channel Frame with appropriate number of specialised Nozzles which can be customised and modified as per the specific requirements of any particular organisations. The water channel frame and nozzle design of the 360° flusher have been optimized to ensure Water Efficiency and reduce water wastage. Ut require 750 watts of power required to run a pump.
